Words of Wisdom by Swami Satchidananda
- Keep the Mind Free from Expectations
"Yoga is perfection in action. If the result of
that action brings benefit to all people concerned
with itto the person who does that action and to
the person who enjoys the benefit of it, without
bringing harm to anybodythen it's a perfect action.
If it's going to bring harm even to one individual
or if it's going to build up tension in your own mind,
it's not a perfect action. When you do something and
expect a reward as a result of that action, then, even
before you start doing it, you build up tension. Instead,
if the mind is kept free from any expectation whatsoever
and if your action is done just for the sake of others,
then that action is a perfect one.
"God bless you. Om Shanthi, Shanthi, Shanthi."
